With European styled design and a slew of features, Kia hopes to enter the luxury market with the 2014 Kia Cadenza.
Kia took the stage at the Detroit Auto Show Tuesday to debut its new premium sedan, the 2014 Kia Cadenza.
The Cadenza, known as the K7 back home in South Korea, resembles the Optima and somewhat mirrors it brother the Hyundai Azera. This is Kia’s attempt to enter the luxury sedan market, so of course it will carry a number of luxury features, including Advanced Smart Cruise Control (ASCC), Blind Spot Detection (BSD) and Lane-Departure Warning System (LDWS). The Cadenza is expected to arrive in Kia retail showrooms in the second quarter of this year, and pricing will be announced closer to the vehicle’s on-sale date.
Kia says the popularity of the Kia Optima SXL was one of many factors which contributed to decision to launch a luxury model in the U.S.
The 2013 Hyundai Elantra is predicted to retain its value, as is the Hyundai brand overall.
The Hyundai brand keeps growing in value, and the industry experts are taking notice.
As a brand, Hyundai finished second in ALG’s annual Residual Value Awards. ALG’s Residual Value Awards honor the vehicles in each segment that are forecast to retain the highest percentage of MSRP after a three-year period. Award recipients were chosen after a careful evaluation of vehicle criteria, including segment competition, historical vehicle performance and industry trends. This year’s awards are based on 2013 model year vehicles.
Many of the top models are in the running for the North American Car of the Year.
Finalists were announced recently, with vehicles from Ford, Honda, Hyundai, Nissan and Subaru making this prestigious list. 45 vehicles in all will compete for the ultimate prize, 2013 North American Car of the Year.
